LIVE from Town Hall: GOP councilmember says media ownership not a partisan issue

Republican County Councilmember Reagan Dunn just spoke the FCC, adding his voice to all of the previous speakers' in opposing Kevin Martin's media ownership rules. "I'm a Republican and I'm a capitalist. But some areas of our private sector must be regulated," Dunn told the FCC to loud cheers and sustained applause.

Commissioner Michael Copps is speaking now, slamming the Republican majority on the Federal Communications Commission for rushing to give big media "a fast break." He's already received three standing ovations. So refreshing to hear him speak truth to power and expose Chairman Kevin Martin's shell game.

This man needs to be in charge of the FCC.
